Triste.

The lineup was watered down due to injury.  The game pitted a fifth starter making his fourth big league start against a fifth starter making his third.  The offense was down to its final strike before delivering three straight singles and extending the game.

But for me that was the worst of the Rangers’ seven losses this season, Joe Nathan’s meltdown against Seattle notwithstanding.  Bullpen hiccups will happen, but walks and errors and plays unmade are killers.

And the biggest question mark for this team going into 2012 was put right back in the frame last night: Neftali Feliz’s fitness to be a reliable Major League starting pitcher, even in the long term.

Still, one of the losses has to be the worst.

Win the series.
